Hello, my name is Katelyn and I am the founder of Little Shop By The Sea.
I began this journey of trying to live more sustainably and organic when I became pregnant with my daughter Elin (which was the name of my first business). I wanted to make sure I was using products that came from only the most natural source for our bodies and for the earth. This new passion brought many changes around our home and for my family (most of which were accepted with a smile). In 2016, I began making natural, reef safe and organic sunscreen when my daughter was only a couple months old, because I found that I wasn’t comfortable putting on my babies fresh skin, all the toxins in traditional sunscreens.
So in July 2020, Little Shop By The Sea was opened on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach.
You can find me in my shop arranging flowers, listening to some of my favorite music and sipping on coffee or tea. On my time off I can be found chasing around two wild children and enjoying time with my husband.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my little shop and I hope you have a beautiful day!
